Dear Parents/Carers of St Cuthbert’s 


Christmas Lunch 

The Christmas Lunch was absolutely delicious this year, as always. Our kitchen team have really surpassed themselves and provided us all with a veritable feast of delicious turkey with all of the trimmings. Thank you to Jane, our cook, and everyone who made the Christmas Lunch such a success.  


Christmas Productions 

Our Christmas productions this year have been outstanding. We are so proud of each and every one of our children from Nursery through to Year 6. They have shared their talents with us willingly and it has been a privilege to see them so full of joy and so confident during their performances.
